Visitors, Dismissal, and Tardy Procedures


Parker Leaders

Parent Information

All parents are required to have a valid ID or drivers license to enter or to check out a student.


Visitors must go directly to the office, sign in and receive a Visitor’s badge before walking in the building. Classroom visits for parent observations are limited to 15 minutes. Your visit will be announced to the teacher or you will be escorted to the classroom. Visitors may not interrupt the teacher. Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled during non-academic times. Administration reserves the right to limit classroom visits. Any other needs can be addressed by office personnel. We will relay information and forgotten items without disturbing the learning environment. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Parents may also have lunch with their child by signing in and receiving a Visitor’s badge. Visitors must return their badge to the front office and sign out before leaving the building.

Early Pick-Up or Dismissal

Picking up students prior to regular dismissal time is extremely disruptive. 

After 3:30 pm, we ask parents to wait until dismissal time to pick up their child.  We begin bus dismissal at 3:50, car pick up for PK at 3:30, K at 3:40, and grades 1-4 at 3::45. This procedure is put in place for the safety of students.  On the fifth early dismissal, we will ask that the parent meet with one of the members of Parker’s Administrative Team in order to work together on a solution so students do not miss important academic time.

Late Arrivals

Children arriving after 8:15 a.m. are tardy. After 8:15 a.m., your child will be required to obtain a Tardy Slip from the office in order to enter class. A parent/guardian must accompany the child into the building to sign in their child. A child may not come in after 8:15 am by themselves. Failure to comply may result in a CPS or G.I.S.D. Police contact.

Thank you for your attention!!
